Publish your metered paywall into iOS and Android apps
Finally… you can run your content and subscription paywall in one WordPress dashboard, and easily offer access to apps.
Our free Leaky Paywall plugin (The #1 metered paywall for WordPress) lets you sell subscriptions without sacrificing search and social visibility on the web. UniPress extends Leaky Paywall into the app stores, giving your subscribers the native app experience they demand today.
Let’s take a look at an example to see how it works:
The People’s Pundit Daily news site recently went live with it’s publication in the app stores. Now each time they publish an article in WordPress, it automatically updates their iOS and Android apps. Web subscribers gain access to apps and app subscribers also gain access to the web edition. Push notifications, ad management, and menu updates are also handled right in their WordPress dashboard for seriously fast workflow.

Here are 7 screenshots that show how the app works
1. New article updates
Publishing a new article in WordPress triggers an app icon badge update so readers can easily see there are new articles available
2. Articles are grouped by date
The home screen shows all your articles in an easy to scroll list and are grouped by date
3. Article page view
Articles inherit feature images, links, photos, YouTube videos, Soundcloud audio, comments, and formatting from the WordPress article.
4. Readers can subscribe in-app, or log in with their web subscription
Readers can subscribe through an in-app purchase or login with a simple token from their web subscription.
5. The menu is easily managed in WordPress
The UniPress menu is controlled in the standard menu area in the WordPress dashboard. You can add pages, posts, categories and tags to the menu items. The menu updates in real time.
5. Send push notifications from WordPress… and let your readers choose which article categories to get notified from
Not only can you schedule and push out notifications from WordPress, you can create push categories for your readers to subscribe to. EG if someone is only interested in hockey news on a sports site you can make sure they only receive push notifications for hockey.
